Taken with Canon 450D. Thanks for viewing and for any comments which are most appreciated.
I added the birds - PS brushes by texturestockbyhjh. My first attempt at this. The area photographed is a birdlife reserve but none would oblige by flying for me.

A good one..Keep an eye on opacity when you use brushes..I find clouds don't need much but birds need quite a bit..Nice..R.

Next time bring a noise maker, otherwise known as a dog, with you. They are good at spooking the wildlife into flight.
A great looking scene Lyn. Wonderful colour tones and lighting in the scene. Nice post work adding the birds.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
